says that mr. obama wants big government, not a big economy. >> republicans have tried to persuade the president of the need for a course correction. but weeks of negotiations have shown that his commitment to big government is simply too great to lead to the kind of long-term reforms we need. >> question. when the negotiations started, president obama was looking for a big deal. $4 trillion in spending cuts and tax hikes. has the big deal turned into a big fizzle, pat buchanan? >> it has not, john. did it for awhile but now it is back, and we're talking about something close to adds 4 trillion deal. the president is deep in negotiations with boehner and cantor, and here are the terms. you raise the debt ceiling, at the same time there are 3 trillion in cuts, and they deal with social security and medicare. there is no revenue enhancement. however, you get together some kind of commission which what it does, john, it drops tax rates in return for giving away these deductions, exemptions, allowances, breaks, which in effect is pure reaganism. there's one problem with that. there's a
to tucker good morning. >> good morning steve that is big news. i don't know what to make of it. >> do i need to console you. >> i am not sure clouds on the increase, storms to the south and west, partly to mostly cloudy day, temperatures expected to be in the 90s. a shower or two later this afternoon. cloud cover off to the north partly sunny morning here in the immediate washington area. notice pittsburgh, portions of ohio, shower and thunderstorm activity, possible some of that could slip in during the course to have day with the cloud cover temperatures will be held back a little bit yesterday we were thinking mid-90s now we are thinking low to mid-90s temperatures a few degrees cooler, regan national, 79 degrees, 79, 66 frederick, 63 winchester, 71 at the naval air station your forecast today more clouds and sun showers this afternoon generally speaking a dry day with a high temperature of 91 degrees still looking at a lot of heat around here on friday, on time traffic and julie. >> travelling along new york avenue at montana we had problem with the signal lights lanes are open once
will play center, big shoes to fill. >> clinton poritis? >> we don't expect him back either. i don't know how much of a market there is for clinton he is an aging older running back and taken a lot of hits some times when you take one too many other teams will be cautious of paying you big bucks when they don't know if you can do it with wear and tear. >> fresh start again let's see what we can do. >> thanks dave. >>> we are following developing story on capitol hill, of course we are talking about the debt debate the death line rapidly approaching congress is heading toward a vote today, but just one step in what will be a very complicated process, as fox's doug luzader explains from capitol hill. >> president obama has promised to veto what the house may do today, many republicans think he is bluffing, no exaggeration to say the political world revolves around john boehner today s the vote he will try to push through his plan to hike the debt ceiling in exchange for spending cuts starting to win over deficit hawks in his own party. >> cuts we can bank, step in the right direction, we ge
, but if a shrunken version of the boehner big does -- or if they go to an emergency extension, the president will be right back in the same predicament he's in right now. i think a lot of people are upset. they blame the republicans more than the democrats for the gamesmanship, but the fact is the republicans have also backed the president into a corner, even if they're doing it in a way that's not popular. >> i want you to analyze these two possibilities, one the president could give away more of the store, more spending cuts, maybe enough to get us thus this increase. which would make the redhots happy. no tax increase at all. the other possibility is to marry what boehner wants right now with what mcconned was talking about next year, where next year it can be are can be raised by the president, only the house would have to come back with a two thirds veto, so it seems there is a possibility for compromise, but the easiest thing is for the president to throw the whole bomb game, say, you win this year, not next year. >> i don't think he can do >> i don't think he can do that, chris. when
delays the big vote indicating he does not have votes to pass it. it all raises the big question, has the tea party taken control of boehner's house? >>> plus, wouldn't you love to know what mr. economy thinks about all this? too bad. because mr. romney is not talking. how's that for leadership. >>> and waiting with wait until you meet the latest extremist to log on to perry's prayer route. i'm al sharpton. breaking news. boehner abruptly delayed a make or break vote on his own debt plan. the speaker frantically been trying to whip up support from tea party republicans all day long. it is an indication that he simply does not have the votes to pass his plan. it is unclear when the vote will happen. the fear here would be a stunning setback for his leadership and for the g oo p establishment as it battles with party members. joining me is nbc's luke russell live on capitol hill. luke, can you tell us what is happening here? >> good evening reverend al. an alarming piece of news that came to us about 15 minutes ago. democratic aides received word from the republican floor staff and in f
opposition to this big, but there, i predict, will be no democrat for this bill so because bipartisanship was not sought. i'm a diely concerned it would pus us right back on the praecipe of imminent default in just a few months, casting a pall of uncertainty. and leading to a job-destroying credit downgrade. >> i urge my colleagues in the name of sanity and in the name of ensuring in a we pass this measure and we send it to our colleagues in the united states senate. >> here areas a quick reality check if this bill passes the house, it's going to hit a big roadblock in the senate. senate democratic caucus, every member of that caucus has signed onto a letter say they will oppose the bill, and senate majority leader harry reid announced today they will quickly take up the bill in the senate this evening, but only to table the measure, a vote to table the measure effectively just setting it aside. that doesn't mean think couldn't take it back up if they wanted to, but it's a quick way legislative for democrats to show there is not enough support for this big to pass the senate. it brings us
higher. the ftse and the dax are both down. sony is reporting big losses. let's go to kyung lah, live in tokyo. good morning, kyung. >> reporter: good morning, ali. it's not just sony but it is a bad day in a lot of boardrooms and many of the electronics companies here in japan. we saw a lot of reporting of the quarter from april to june. sony posted a loss of 191 million u.s. dollars. panasonic, down 390 million. sharp down 630 million and nintendo says they lost in that quarter 327 million u.s. dollars. why? well, partially because of the march 11th earthquake. they are still trying to recover from the poor sales and the supply problems. the other theme we keep seeing over and over again from these electronics companies is the currency problem. the u.s. dollar is sinking. sinking very rapidly in these last six weeks. u.s. manufacturers, just like japanese manufacturers all operate on the u.s. dollar. and so when japanese manufacturers then have to repatriate these funds here, they lose if the dollar is sinking and the yen is rising. what is pushing the dollar down is all of that u.s
in the senate. >> the big difference is we have a much, much more ideological and left wing liberal president now than we had in bill clinton who was much more practical about this. president clinton acknowledged and accepted the proposition that we ought to get on a path to a balanced budget. >> liberals with long memories cite the degree to which the house speaker, newt gingrich then, john boehner today, exercised control over their own caucuses. scot lilly, now a senior fellow at the center for american progress, argues gingrich could more easily forge a deal because gingrich was more involved than boehner in recruiting the freshmen. >> he was timetable bring them along. he was part of their revolution in a way. speaker boehner is seen, i think, within the conference as a more moderate voice. i think he's not as trusted by the conservative elements within his -- within the republican conference. >> analysts also cited the rise of the internet, which serves some say to inflame opinion on both sides and make compromise more difficult, and the economy. the unemployment rate in 1995 was a litt
the debt limit. they he asked for big tax increases. we got rid of the tax increases. and now we go a bill that does what we said it should do. is it perfect? to. but it is a good step on spending cuts. is it as much as we proposed and passed? no. but it gets us down the right path. it cuts we can bank now and a step in the right direction. i think it is a good step in the right direction. >> greta: it has to get 217 votes. you've got a rowdy freshman crowd who ran on the promise of a balanced budget amendment. and the balanced budget amendment is not in the boehner bill. how do you get enough of them to get your 217 mark and have them face their voters? >> we are going to have a vote on the balance budget amendment. separate from the boehner bill. that was always the case. the second, cut, cap and balance had the bba separate from the bill. >> greta: balanced budget amendment. >> right, excuse me. we never had assurances we could get a vote on the balance budget amendment in the senate. what i never agreed with was the idea we would expect harry reid and nancy pelosi to deliver 40 to 15 v
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
to our financial markets. >> that is a big statement. house democratic leadership team coming out saying that. the house has rejected the 14th amendment solution. but we're still six days out. for leaders like mr. clyburn to go down that road gives the president some pretty good cover and a pretty good idea. the president doesn't want to overreach, but his base would love it. it's going to wipe out any discretionary cuts that would hurt low and fixed income americans. get your cell phones out, i want to know what you think. should the president invoke the 14th amendment to resolve the debt crisis? text a for yes, b for no to 622639 and can you always go to our new blog at ed.msnbc.com. >>> joining us now is donna edwards ofรง maryland. she's a member of the progressive caucus. congressman elliott engle, jared nabler are holding a press conference to urge president obama to use the 14th amendment as a backup option. would you join those folks tomorrow? what do you think about the 14th amendment option right now? the white house has said repeatedly no, but the game could change. what do y
's going to play pretty big hardball on this to borrow a phrase, chris. seems to me he really is boehner's back. not just having boehner's back today or boehner's back tomorrow, but he's going to have boehner's back. the question is, can harry reid pry away seven or eight republicans to work with him? where does that happen? at this point i don't think you'll see any movement on a deal publicly, at the earliest, not until sunday. >> is the real fear not that there's a second effort to cut spending a bit more, but the second part of this spending cuts which would come at the end of this year, the vote on that, would actually cut to the bone. go after entitlements, medicare, after things the democrats treasurer jer is that the big fear? i think pelosi, former speaker, now democratic leader, was alluding to that in her very strong statement against the boehner plan tonight? >> reporter: that is one fear. you talk to democrats familiar with the way these negotiations have gone, and they'll say, look, this first $1.2 2r8 trillion, the first round ever cuts they have in their plans are almost
're going to see something between the reid and boehner plans, the big difference is the boehner plan forces us to raise the debt ceiling again and forces us to accept a $1.8 trillion or more in cuts from the so-called super commission, and if we don't do it, we go through another crises. also a vote on the budget amendment. i think you could get something more rationalal to incentivize another plan down the road and have something with enough pressure coming from the markets, both parties could vote for. >> you make it sound like if reasonable people had a conversation about this there might actually be a solution, so thanks for being on and talking with us today. >> glad to be here. >> that was ezra klein, columnist for "the washington post" and bloomberg and also an msnbc policy analyst. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> now, ask yourself, would you -- no, not you, nancy. would you want john boehner's job right now, trying to placate a gaggle of angry tea partiers and stave off an economic calamity at the same time? i suspect there are moments even he doesn't want this job, but he's got it
for a lot more spending cuts later on. they are running out of room to cut. you will remember the big spending bill earlier this year cut tens of billions of dollars. so if you take a step back and you look at the entire forest there's a lot of spending cuts going on. lot of real spending cuts democrats are arguing that they are going to hurt a lot of people. so those certainly are accounting tricks. in terms of that last little margin to get to the point where they are cutting more than they are raising the debt ceiling which is what republican leaders wanted to do, they needed to rely on some creative use of cbo accounting methods. >> right. this is also interesting, though. even if he does get john boehner, that is, the house, even if he does get the conservatives to fall in lynn and go ahead and vote for this, there seems to be question about whether it will get out of the senate. have you 53 senators, two independents, included who said they are not going to support boehner's proposal. now we are looking at another proposal perhaps harry reid's proposal which the cbo also downgra
raise the debt limit. then he asked for big tax increases. we got rid of the tax increases. now we have a bill that does what hee we said it should do, cuttings more than it raises the debt limit by. is it perfect? no. is it as much as we proposed? no. this doesn't do that. but it gets us down the right path. it's cuts we can bank right now, it's a step in the right direction. so i think it's a good step in the right direction. >> it has to get 217 votes. have you a rowdy freshmen crowd who ran on the promise of a balanced budget amendment. and the balanced budget amendment is not in the boehner bill. how do you get enough of them to get to your 217 mark and have them go home and face their voters where they promised a balanced budget amendment? >> we have a vote on the balanced budget amendment. >> separate? >> that was always the case. the second thing, cut, cap and balance had to be separate from the bill. >> balanced budget amendment. >> that's right, excuse me. this requires that the senate vote on a balanced budget amendment. we never had the assurances we could even get a vote on
for the auto industry. we examine the new round of labor talks between the u.a.w. and detroit's big three. >> ifill: ray suarez gets an update on the turmoil in libya. >> brown: and we close with a paul solman story about a convicted murderer and middle school dropout who now makes $80,000 a year after completing college while behind bars. >> these are my dreams. i fit in right here, but this is what i'm looking at, this is where i want to be, this is where i can be, this is where i deserve to be. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshour." major funding for the pbs newshour has been provided by: >> i mean, where would we be without small businesses? >> we need small businesses. >> they're the ones that help drive growth. >> like electricians, mechanics, carpenters. >> they strengthen our communities. >> every year, chevron spends billions with small businesses. that goes right to the heart of local communities, providing jobs, keeping people at work. they depend on us. >> the economy depends on them. >> and we depend on them. and by the alfred p. sloan foundation. supporting scie
been going on now since the big deal talks between boehner and obama broke down on friday among all the congressional leaders on how to fix basically one problem. that is, how long the debt limit increase we will do. they have not been able to resolve that problem. host: do you think there's a chance the house really will leave town? guest: i do not know. no one would confirm that. there were rumors yesterday, mainly from democrats. republicans said they had heard nothing like that. democrats also said they would be surprised if the house would do that. it will look terrible with this crisis hanging over the nation. crisis hanging over the nation. it has happened in on other occasions. host: lori montgomery, according to the senate schedule, harry reid will be announcing the schedule at 11:00 a.m. have you heard anything? guest: i have not. when i left last night, it was not clear. they were still planning to proceed as they have been talking about for a week. that is, when the house bill comes over, they want to tilt it -- to kill it. it's not clear how they will do that. will they
for joining us. if we don't get a deal out of washington before the big bad debt ceiling deadline, one of the guys you can blame or thank, depending on how you see it, is congressman joe walsh, a republican from illinois. he's one of those freshmen who rode the tea party wave into washington last fall. we mentioned them a moment ago. he spoke out against a compromise at a tea party rally in washington earlier today. listen. >> i'm a freshman. maybe i'm naive. but i don't think unless we force -- unless we force republicans and democrats to balance their books every year, they won't. the only way we can do that is to force them. the only way we can force them is to put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution. we have to do that. we can't yield. >> and congressman walsh joins me now live from capitol hill. congressman, welcome back to the show here. listen, you know what i'm hearing more than anything around d.c., people are saying about you and some of the other people who are really holding the hard line here, don't these guys know how to take a win? because the feeling is that
is not one of the big players in all of this. he has taken a role where he made is clear on the floor where he is fully supportive. he said what needed to be said. throw sug port there. but privately many other senators are telling us mccon sell working on a deal. mcconnell's aides say no, that's not going on. if you piece these things together, you get the sense where someone who thinks he can see the end game, thought i had it a while back and the opportunity for members of congress to disapprove a debt ceiling vote, which is part of the mechanics of hoop jumping legislatively is actually a plus for some tea party members who don't want to be on board right now. second ago, paul ducked under the camera to get to another location. he is another one i was thinking of. when you vote against the debt ceiling but give the president that authority that might be way for everybody to get what they want. it is of course too soon to see how it will factor out. but watching mix mcconnell, you will see someone who gets a sense of how things work and to see how he uses the power he earned all this tim
. if they manage to defeat this vote today, this is going to be a big, big problem for markets. if they don't, you may see markets continue to tread water until there is a solution to this. now, remember, speaker boehner's plan is not likely one that is going to pass the senate. not likely one that is going to get past the president. the bottom line if there is some sense boehner has better control of h over hi members you may see markets allowing a little bit more time. right now markets are largely relaxing but ready to move if this doesn't go the right way. >> thanks, guys. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we will go to wall street for the opening bell and answer a question many of us have right now -- should we take our money out of the stock exchange and where do we put it if so. we will talk to a financial analyst about that. >>> cnn obtained dramatic new video taken minutes after the bombing of the government buildings in norway. it was shot by a hamburg who works in oslo and driving through a tunnel beneath the city's government plaza when the bomb went off. eight people killed. he recorded
